Frigidaire Icemaker not making ice.

We had a power outage. After the power outage, the icemaker stopped making ice. At first I could not get the raker arm to turn, but now it turns. However, the ice maker doesn't seem to cycle. Nothing is happening. The ice tray is empty, now water in it. I'm getting water to the water dispenser on the door. So I'm wondering if maybe the water line to the ice maker is frozen? How do I troubleshoot this issue to see if it is a frozen water line or a broken ice maker. The icemaker is one with the metal on/off arm.

Same problem, I had several power outages in a day recently. Don't know if this is when it quit making ice or not. The tray cycles, but no water ever enters the tray. I've tried the hair dryer on the tube and the back part of the freezer around it. What's the next step to diagnose the problem?

    I have a Frigidaire Electrolux.The water despencer puts out water but the ice tray doesn't get water. is there a way I can check it to see if it is clogged? I too had a power outage around the same time. Could this be the cause?

That on/off should be able to move it and it will likely make a small click when the switch goes on or off. That arm controls the ice making. There is also a float, is it working freely? It has a switch too. Ultimately, the water is controlled by a solenoid valve. It may be defective. Many of these units are removable to test the switches with a multimeter. Turn off the water and remove to test. Some parts are available...some parts are by the unit only.

The ice maker will not work if the freezer temp is not below 5 degrees "F". had the same problems. My defroster in the bottom back section of the freezer was frozen in a block of ice and not allowing the freezer to work properly.

Power went out freezer won't make ice in ice maker

Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!
Normally, if power is not being received by your Frigidaire refrigerator it will not produce ice within the icemaker. Now once power has been restored it could take up to 24 hours to maintain temperature and start producing ice. If the power went out it is possible that the icemaker could have shorted or the water valve could have went out. I hope this information has been insightful. -Matt

Ice maker has stopped working

IT is either your inlet valve which is cheaper than replacing the icemaker, when you replace it(located behind panel on back of fridge) make sure you do not have ice build-up in the water tube behind icemaker. If that does not work than you will have to replace icemaker. If you take a flathead screwdriver and pop the cover off of your icemaker you will either have a screw that you can manually turn to test the icemaker to see if it is working. There is one you can do this with, the other one you would need an icemaker tester that most tech's have. Good luck!

The ice maker was making ice then some of the ice turned yellow and now the ice maker has stopped making ice. The freezer is still freezing the food in there.

The icemaker concists of a gearbox that has oil inside it.When the gearbox wears, it starts to leak at the shaft. Suggest you replace the icemaker.

Frigidaire ice maker not working

The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting

Icemaker dont work after power outage

Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.
